Recommended Training, Diet And Supplementation For Women


Many women want a tight, firm, toned body, but are concerned that muscle training could make them big and bulky. They are afraid that lifting weights could cause their muscles to bulk up like men do. Don't worry - this is not a problem. Women don't build bulky muscles, because they have low levels of testosterone. If you want to get a toned body, lifting heavier weights at the gym will make a huge difference. In addition to working out with weights, diet and supplements are also important to getting the hard body you desire.


Diet Recommendations

To have the body of your dreams, certain diet changes are required. You will never get lean if you eat pizza and pasta on a daily basis. Here are the basic guidelines to adhere to:

- Count Calories - The major difference between men and women as far as the diet they need is that women need fewer calories because they are generally smaller and have less muscle mass. If you want to lose weight, you need to take in fewer calories than you expend. At the same time, you can't starve yourself, or you won't build muscle. Set a target for daily calories, and then count your calories.

However, eating 1 pizza, drinking fizzy drinks and finishing up with some cake to make 1,500 calories won’t give you the body that you want. It’s important to eat good food in order to stay healthy as well. Junk food will destroy your body on the long term.

- Track Macronutrient Ratios - Even if you eat the same number of calories, your results will be quite different if you get 80% of those from carbs vs. 80% of them from protein. Women tend to burn more fats more easily than men do, so women often do well on a diet low in carbs. Shoot for "low carb" but not "no carb", in order to lose weight and gain lean muscle.

- Get Enough Protein - When you want to build new muscle, you need to eat protein in order for your body to have the building blocks to build it. The recommended amount for you may be more than you're used to, but your body will adjust, and you will appreciate how full protein can make you feel.

Getting The Most Out Of Your Fitness Regime


Often, a lot of time and effort goes into a fitness regime, so it’s important that one makes the best of it. It is worth planning and tailoring a fitness regime to be specific to the goals in mind – building and toning up requires a different exercise routine when compared to reducing fat and slimming down. A diet is crucial too, and taking the right vitamins and supplements is essential to achieving a healthy balance.

Plan Exercise and Dieting Routines In Line with Your Goals

Building muscle and reducing fat are the two popular goals for fitness regimes, but the approaches are very different. Not only do the two plans require different workout regimes, they will also require specific dietary adjustments. To achieve weight loss goals one needs to restrict calorie intake – as the body burns energy throughout the day and during exercise, a reduction in calories will force the body to burn fat.


On the flipside, if the plan is to bulk up or tone, there will be a need to increase the intake of certain food groups to ensure the body has the right nutrients to build muscle. In addition, it will be difficult to achieve a low calorie diet when there are post workout meals planned. Workout routines are different for these two goals – cardio training is great for losing weight, but if trying to build muscle, cardio training needs to be limited as this could reduce the calorie surplus that can be used for building muscle.
